Myth Mob!



Myth Mob does it again -- this time it's


Liz Warren, Marilyn Torres, Harriet Cole and Sulé Greg Wilson join forces once more and the result will again be myth, madness and mayhem! Liz is going Welsh (with a maid made of flowers), Harriet’s Valkyrie are running amok, Sulé has an extraordinary buffalo and Marilyn’s African goddess says it all: “YOU DON’T OWN ME!”
This is myth like you rarely see – Myth with humor, myth with music, myth gone wild.

The Three Sorrows of Ireland

I am a storyteller who was blessed with storytelling parents and grandparents.  I have always told stories because I never knew any differently! I have been telling formally for about 3 years and will complete my SMCC storytelling certificate in spring 2012.


Myth is a great genre to tell stories from, because it provides an opportunity to learn about the culture it represents. I chose the Three Sorrows of Ireland for two reasons; partly because Celtic stories are one of my areas of focus and because these three stories are very traditional. Deirdre of the Sorrows is a particular favorite and I am looking forward to sharing it with you.

Olga Loya


The Aztec Creation

Latina storyteller, performance artist, writer and teacher, Olga Loya uses a dramatic mix of Spanish and English to share traditional tales from Latin America as well as stories from her own varied and colorful life growing up in East Los Angeles. Known nationally and described as an "alchemist" who can conjure up images and fill them with life, her shows are bursting with color and passion. Stories inspired by legend and current headlines, reality and dreams, ancient myths and personal experience, healing stories and tales of extraordinary women are shared with imagination and exuberance as Loya uses her voice, body and sometimes music and dance to draw her audience into the imaginative and surprising worlds of the tales she tells.


She has been a featured teller at many festivals including the Guadalajara, Mexico Festival and the Jonesborough National Storytelling Festival. Loya has performed and taught workshops at colleges, schools, libraries, conferences, festivals, museums, bookstores, and corporations.
